I am just about done with my VERY first pair of socks.:happydance:

After I finish it I am going to start on this BlueJean Purse. (http://www.magknits.com/Nov05/denim.htm)

I really want/need to find a pattern for my MMMalabrigo yarn that I have.

I'd never mqke it because I don't sew AT All. But I think the purse is adorable!

Cute socks! I think the purse is an interesting way to recycle blue jeans. I can't wait to see your FO!

Loved the jean purse. I am working on a prayer shawl for my sister in law and also a pair of socks that have been so fun to see coming out and looking like real socks. I am a new knitter so I am so excited to be making things. :happydancing:

Sylvia, what part are you having problem with?

I got me 4 pairs of jeans,, at a second hand store.. cost me 4.50 for all 4. I got one pair in RED...=) Now I am cutting them into strips. I went to Wal-mart and got me a circle scissors that they use for quilting. I love them.

After you cut the jeans.. you knot them into one big long piece so you can wind it into a ball. (I am not going to do that,, I am going to sew each piece to each other)

The only parts that need to be sew. Is the waist band, and the handles. If you have a sewing machine that will work great, or you could just hand sew it.

If you want to put a liner in the purse you could sew it by hand or Machine.
